Brown W. Weight gain data support the case for activation of Australian women. In Marketing Sport and Physical Activity . , 2006; : 15-22

The aim of this paper is to explore the continuing growth in levels of overweight and obesity in Australian women in the last ten years, the behavioural and social factors that are associated with this growth, and strategies for prevention of further growth through increasing physical activity. The paper draws on data collected as part of the Australian Longitudinal Study of Women's Health (ALSWH), a population based survey which has been tracking the health of three large cohorts (younger, mid-age and older) of women since 1996.
